Fig Tree Cafe, a “hidden gem tucked away in Cahaba Heights” has expanded in more ways than one.
According to a recent announcement, the cafe is now offering an expanded menu and larger area to enjoy their delicious eats.
Beginning as a catering business, the Fig Tree Cafe has certainly been growing quite fast within the small Vestavia community, while “taking the pretentiousness out of fine dining”.
Although quaint and respectable small, which first enticed its regular customers, the expansion through renovations were carried out to meet future demand.
“What they do is special and unexpected…
The restaurant is hidden in Cahaba Heights and we like it that way, almost, so people don’t catch on.”
– Joe Terry, regular patron of Fig Tree said in the release
- Larger Kitchen
This will allow the cafe to focus on specialty grilled meats, through its expanded menu!
- Full Bar
The bar, managed by the “mixologist”, Brandon Wright, will serve up craft cocktails and more.
“He provides our patrons with a cocktail menu ranging from the usual to outside-the- box ideas changing the menu monthly depending on what ingredients are fresh at the time.”
– JP Holland, Owner and Exec. Chef, proclaimed in the release
- Doubled seating capacity
The executive chef and owner, JP Holland, is dedicated to a “farm-to-table” business model and wants to make it clear that his offerings are fresh & localized.
“Fig Tree Café’s secret weapon is the unassuming vibe and ever-changing menu. Customers enter the restaurant with zero expectations and walk out blown away.”
Fun fact, all the farming sources connected with Fig Tree Cafe are no more than an hour away from Birmingham.
Clearly freshness is not only a key to success, but a philosophy…
